I actually had to go to my cube today in NYC and guess what - the headphone jack in my PC is not working.

:(

Now I get to listen to babble coming from other cubes instead of a nice tasty show.

Carry on

Cube? You're lucky to have a CUBE! We have to work in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor is missing; we are all huddled together in one corner for fear of F

Monty Python's Flying Circus -
"Four Yorkshiremen"

[ from the album Live At Drury Lane, 1974 ]

The Players:
Michael Palin - First Yorkshireman;
Graham Chapman - Second Yorkshireman;
Terry Jones - Third Yorkshireman;
Eric Idle - Fourth Yorkshireman;
The Scene:
Four well-dressed men are sitting together at a vacation resort.
'Farewell to Thee' is played in the background on Hawaiian guitar.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, very passable, that, very passable bit of risotto.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
Nothing like a good glass of Château de Chasselas, eh, Josiah?
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
You're right there, Obadiah.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Who'd have thought thirty year ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Château de Chasselas, eh?
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In them days we was glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
A cup o' cold tea.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Without milk or sugar.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Or tea.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In a cracked cup, an' all.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Oh, we never had a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Because we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness, son".
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, 'e was right.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, 'e was.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
I was happier then and I had nothin'. We used to live in this tiny old house with great big holes in the roof.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
House! You were lucky to live in a house! We used to live in one room, all twenty-six of us, no furniture, 'alf the floor was missing, and we were all 'uddled together in one corner for fear of falling.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Eh, you were lucky to have a room! We used to have to live in t' corridor!
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Oh, we used to dream of livin' in a corridor! Would ha' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woke up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House? Huh.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Well, when I say 'house' it was only a hole in the ground covered by a sheet of tarpaulin, but it was a house to us.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
We were evicted from our 'ole in the ground; we 'ad to go and live in a lake.
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
You were lucky to have a lake! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t' shoebox in t' middle o' road.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Cardboard box?
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.
SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Well, of course, we had it tough. We used to 'ave to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night and lick road clean wit' tongue. We had two bits of cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at mill for sixpence every four years, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two wit' bread knife.
FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.
FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
And you try and tell the young people of today that ..... they won't believe you.
ALL:
They won't!

Did you see the Morphine Man who lived in Drury Lane?

I vaguely remember gigs at the Drury Lane Theatre and that the International Times was based there for a while. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Times but other than that my memory is shrouded in mist.

ps Just returned from my summer holiday in France, catching up on the forum and enjoying your eclectic contributions...I think you may be the forums first Gallic poster...in any case Bienvenue!

I do not remember any Morphine Man on Drury Lane .I don't touch that stuff even when aching pains .In the 60's wouldn't even touch LSD myself ,just trying my first tokes . They whre places on Drury Lane i got invited to visit but mostly cared only about the music .Under the pretense of drugs ,sex and rock and roll ,it looked too much as roman orgies,and I never liked public screwing ,can't think of better word to describe that gig .Luckilly,I never saw that among deadheads in public eye ,had more respect about these kinds of pastimes meant as personal experiences.Highest bracket of good vibes fun with Grateful Dead !

Nop,bubblebrew,I haven't listened to much O Monty Python yet . I know the name and I have seen ot couple movies but it never really caught my attention until Sgaggerly spelled out in writing this so british humor !Having the time to pounder what's being said is sometimes necessary with me,as I had to get into a habit of shuting off what people say just to protect my ears ,so many bad stuff being said, humor wasn't much of my pastime in yearss, but deadheads are most welcome to share intelligent fun with me!!!You got more Of these to councel me to hear about ?

EUH...no sure the first time I send my message it landed on right forforum, I try again:it it possible to do 2 things at the same time on archive.org ,like cruising on the site while also hearing a G.D.concert ? IF yes,tellme how, but answer must be most simple for a beginner !

Well skies, I use Internet explorer. If you use the same browser, you can cruise the archive site on one tab and stream a G.D. show on archive in a seperate tab. Or you can create one browser window for cruising, and a new, seperate window for streaming G.D. shows. I hope this helps. The first thing I do when browsing is fire up a G.D. show, then continue with whatever.
btw, I have enjoyed the company of scandanavians too. I have been to Sweden several times and have many friends there I consider family. Ahhh, midnight dinners on the Baltic...

You are real cute ,Bubblebrew ! You really thought I could yet understand smart explanations about tabs and all ? I have IE OK, maybe NC got it a bit more clear :I never knew till now I could block a tab with mouse , euh I'll have to try that first . I suppose I must improve this attitude that I simple not capable to ever learn more about my PC . Just thinking of it makes me already tired ,and it's only morning here!!!

You need to open a separate browser session if you are streaming using the built in player. If you stream VBR M3U link on the left it will play through your PC media player then you don't have to open separate browser.

play around you'll figure it out
